night, that after the u.s. department of education launched an investigation about four months ago and it specifically looked into oakland unified's zero tolerance policy when dealing with students. it found that it actually may be violating some students' civil rights. specifically right now african-american students make up about 32% of all students in oakland public schools, but they receive 63% of all the suspensions given out. in may the department of education's office of civil rights looked into whether the district treated black students more harshly than white students. the agreement means that there will be changes happening within the next five years. the district will move towards restorative type discipline instead of zero tolerance. now, instead of the initial 11 schools that they talked about, they'll roll this out in 38 of its 86 schools. what they want to do is bring down the suspension rate overall, including suspensions for african-american and special education students. they'll try and reduce defiance-related suspensions. civil advocates say that it's rather vague.

education. or clean energy. or research. and technology. we can't afford to roll back regulations on wall street banks or oil companies or insurance companies. that is not a jobs plan. it's not a plan to grow our economy. it's sure not a plan to strengthen our middle class. we have been there. we have tried that. we're not going back. we are moving forward. we've got a different view about how we create jobs and prosperity in this country. [applause] this country doesn't just succeed when just a few are doing well at the top. succeed is when the middle lass gets bigger. our economy doesn't grow from the top down. it grows from the middle out. we don't -- we don't believe that anybody's entitled to success in this country. but we do believe in opportunity. we believe in a country where hard work pays off. and responsibility is rewarded. and everybody's getting a fair shot. and everybody's doing their fair share. and everybody's playing by the same rules. that's the country we believe in. that's what we've been fighting for for the last four years. that's what we are going to put in place i

especially working with education and the dropout rates, voting is very important but it's not everything and for a lot of people they don't think it's the right avenue for them right now. there's a lot of outreach that can be done. >> the that is a big format. you just made such a great point about how a lot of people don't vote because they think one vote every four years. they are not going to lose by one vote but that is true but when you vote regularly it make it into the minds of people who think about running for office. even before they get elected so they become accountable on a national level. at the local level the way you get elected as you go to the board of elections and have them print out a list of registered voters and from this list view look how many times you have voted in which election and it also has your age and your gender and the software -- we had in our data a column that showed whether the people had elected were cat owners. take that list and you go down the street and if you're in a real hurry you go to the people who vote all the time. if you're trying to b

. >> what is the one thing we should be concentrating on to improve education in this country? >> i'm a former school board member of 20 years. i started out in a two-room school house, was elected to that board and then served over 15 years on the valentine school board. i understand the importance of education. it is a priority for me. but it works best at the local level. it works best when you have school board members involved, when you have parents involved, when you have a community involved and when you have educators involved. one of the mistakes i believe that has been made at the federal level is the package of the no child left behind act. i think it started out with good intentions, but it hasn't accomplished what it should have. it has taken educators out of the classroom, and we need to keep them in the classroom if they are going to address the needs of students. >> senator? >> the most important thing is to make sure that these kids arrive in kindergarten ready to learn. if they are behind, they are never going to catch up. i am not going to get a nobel prize for making

, creating more opportunities and extending the scope of cyber education beyond the federal work place while working to attract top professionals to work with us in the scientific and cyber fields. we also began a new effort to our homeland security council in conjunction with public and private sector partners to develop an agile cyber or force across the federal government. i am looking forward to the recommendations. in conclusion, all of us depend on a safe, reliable separate network in our daily lives and businesses. all of us must do our part to help protect these networks. that is true whether you are a security professional in government, a member of the media, or an internet user. we share the advantages of our internet age, but with that comes responsibility. i thank you all for being here this morning to discuss this topic, and i think again the national journal and government executives for hosting today's gathering. let's get to the questions. thank you.
